Two problems with that idea, Bill:
1) I have neither the hardware nor the software to connect my VCR to my computer.
2) I taped this off TNT just like Guy did.
I think this flick was originally released in 3-D, so maybe the copyright notice was in the dimension left off the 2-D version. Wouldn't change the status of the 2-D version, but it would explain the renewal.

Too bad you can't put it up. Copyfraud is a real problem with companies claiming bogus copyright renewals. Elmagno's suggestion to get a copy from Netflix (or elsewhere) may be the only way to get the movie here, since my copy and Guyzilla's aren't very good.

Netflix only has GOG available for veiwing, not for rental. I looked. But you can at least watch it there.

I took another look at my copy. The stuttering is caused by frames 'vibrating' back and forth during some sequences. It's really annoying, but I'm going to upload it soon, anyway. Maybe it'll inspire someone to upload a better copy.

Bill, you bring up a good point about the copyright notice being in small font. I read somewhere that for a movie the notice had to be clearly legible when expanded to full screen. I'm still trying to track down where I read that. I thought it was at USCO but haven't found it again yet.

If that's true, I can think of five uploaders that are going to be pissed at me for finding the small print on "The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant!"

Or the fact that I had taken down "Dracula vs Frankenstein". I was checking out the possibility that my copy was PD. I played it looking for a notice and I did find it in the opening credits, but I had to look twice. The notice was flashed so quickly that if you blinked you'd miss it. I'm not exagerating.

I found the info I was talking about at the USCO site. This is their section on copyright law for films before 1978.

Check out my separate forum posts listed below:
